Hans Niemeyer can finally leave prison after having been detained since November 2011 when a bomb exploded early in the branch of the BCI bank, resulting in him suffering acoustic trauma and being arrested.
The prosecutor quickly built a case involving him in other attacks, demanding almost 19 years in prison under the anti-terrorist law.
– On the basis of the offence “placing an explosive device” (according to the anti-terrorism law) against the BCI bank on November 30, 2011, an action claimed by the Manuel Gutiérrez Combat Group: 12 years’ prison.
– On the basis of the offence “fabrication” of an explosive device (according to the law on weapons control) that would be used for the September 17, 2010 in an attack on a high tension mast at Las Condes, an action claimed by the Alex Lemun Commando.
– On the basis of the offence of “fabrication” (according to the law on weapons control) of an explosive device that would have been used against the memorial to Jaime Guzmán  on August 14, 2011, claimed retrospectively by the Revolutionary Crime Cell German Bladomirobvich.
– On the basis of the “fabrication” (according to the law on weapons control) of an explosive device that would have been used against a dealership near the monument mentioned on August 16, 2011, later claimed by the German Revolutionary Crime Cell Bladomirobvich.
Finally, and following trial, Hans was convicted under the law on weapons + damage, and thanks to an equation and legal acrobatics, they managed to sentence him to five years + 300 days’ prison. The reasons of the judicial power were, on the one hand, revenge for Hans’s four months on the run from the start of house arrest, and on the other to send a signal as an example after recent trials in which the counterterrorism laws had been dropped and comrades remained free under the law on weapons control (as had happened with comrade Luciano Pitronello and comrades Carla and Ivan).
Finally, Hans Niemeyer obtained a short reduction in sentence of two-months for each year, putting forward his release date from February 2018 to November 14, 2017.
After 5 years in prison … welcome back to the streets!
